Norma Rae Trivia
- The film is based on a real-life union organizing campaign at J.P. Stevens Mill in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. Norma Rae is based on Crystal Lee Sutton. Reuben Warshowsky, the union organizer, is based on Eli Zivkovich, a 55-year-old former West Virginia coal miner. In 1974, thanks to the efforts of Sutton and Zivkovich, workers at J.P. Stevens Mill voted to join the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union. However, it took 10 years for the union to get a contract. Some real-life events are re-created verbatim in the movie, including Norma Rae holding up the "UNION" sign and the plant workers shutting down their machines, and Norma Rae waking up her children to tell them about her relationships with their fathers.
- Marsha Mason, Jane Fonda, Faye Dunaway, and Jill Clayburgh all passed on the title role. Raquel Welch was also considered for the role. Coincidentally, Mason, Fonda, and Clayburgh had been nominated for the Academy Award 1980 to best actress and which Sally Field won for this film.
- Sally Field and Beau Bridges researched their roles by working in a factory.
- According to her autobiography, Shirley MacLaine wanted the lead role.
- According to a 1980 Washington Post article, Crystal Lee Sutton received no profits from the movie.
- Director Martin Ritt once said of Crystal Lee Sutton, "I've known a lot of women in my life, most of them much more educated and sophisticated, who would not have had the balls that she had."
- The sound of the machines at the mill was problematic during filming because it made the dialogue hard to hear.
- When Sally Field won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival for this movie, Field said that it was the first time that her work had been publicly honored (at least in cinema movies, as Field had won an Emmy Award for Sybil (1976)).
- Sally Field did the film against Burt Reynolds' advice, and afterward ended their relationship.
- Crystal Lee Sutton died September 11, 2009, in Burlington, N.C. She was 68.
